Cultural value beyond measure? The emergence of impact and impact evaluation in the Dutch cultural sector
In recent years artists, arts organisations and funders in the Netherlands are tentatively turning to impact, and impact evaluation, to describe the outcome of artistic activities and the value of culture. This research takes the Dutch cultural sector’s use of impact (evaluation) as an object of study, exploring the impact mindshift within the sector. The impact discourse researched relates to the effect(s) the arts instill in their audience and/or society. The study aims to create clarity around the concept, making it a workable term that cultural professionals can use in a way tailored to their practice. It responds to two research questions: How is the language of impact being used in the Dutch cultural sector? What are potential reasons that the impact evaluation trend is emerging?

Braidt, A.B., Garcia Lopez, A., Turner, R.
Report contains the selected presentations from the sessions during the 15th ELIA Biennial Conference exploring four themes: shifting centres, shifting margins; art and social cohesion; art and economy; and art and innovation.

How to connect art students with the neighbourhood? How to communicate to decision-makers about equal access to the arts and arts education? Why is it important to educate resilient dancers?
